- Instructors will register the students for the class (which can be taught throughout the semester) by e-mailing us an Excel spreadsheet with all of the student names as they are to appear on their cards and certificate, with first names in the first column and last names in the second column.
- Once this form is received, we will mail all of the cards and certificates to the designated contact person at the institution or contact person’s home address (typically, the instructor is the designated contact person). Additionally, we will e-mail an invoice to the institution for payment. Payment arrangements must be made prior to the students beginning the program.
- Each instructor is required to have all students sign in on a roster in order to verify their attendance in the program. Rosters are to be submitted to our office within 72 hours of completing the program/class. It is preferred that rosters are scanned and emailed to us however we will accept them via standard mail (if communicated to us).
- Instructor is responsible for distributing the cards/certificates to the students upon completion of the course.
- If an instructor moves or changes their address (if cards/certificates are mailed directly to the instructor), or changes employment with the school, they are required to notify Pet Emergency Education immediately providing the new shipping information to us through email. Any instructor that does not update their mailing address causing materials and supplies to be send to an incorrect or old address will be responsible for the shipping costs and any loss or damage to supplies incurred.
- Instructors will teach using the Pet Emergency Education PowerPoint and lesson plans provided through the training Instructors but encouraged to add their own “spin” on their classes and may change and/or add pictures as long as the instructor has ownership and/or legal copyright approval for any pictures displayed in the presentation. The steps to PetCPR+ animal CPR, however, must be followed without deviation.
- Instructors are NEVER allowed to promote their own personal beliefs, agendas and/or opinions during any Pet Emergency Education, LLC class. This is a factual training program that teaches documented scientifically proven information to our class participants. At no time will we tolerate instructors that discuss controversial subject matter in a class including but not limited to Controversial information and organizations such as animal rights organizations, training equipment and training methods, personal opinions on animal breeds and breed laws and regulations, etc.
- The program is designed to be approximately three hours of material. Instructors teaching in an educational facility may choose to break the information up between multiple class meetings. Distribution of the material is at the discretion of the instructors, however students are not allowed to receive their certification cards and certificates until all material is completed and students have been “tested” and passed the CPR portion.
- In order to become certified, each student must complete the entire program and demonstrate the steps to CPR on a professional mannequin start to finish accurately. At no time should a participant receive a certification card who has not completed all of the PetCPR+ program. If a student’s name is misspelled or incorrect on a card at the fault of the person submitting the registration page or payment link, a $3 reprint fee will be charged in order to receive a new card and certificate.
